Remember when Lady Gaga fans celebrated that
ARTPOP ARTFLOP's second single debuted near the Top 10 last week?
Knowing their ignorance, we
taught explained to them that the song debuted high on the charts only because the track was automatically downloaded with the album pre-order (not because of the individual song sales).
Well, in case you needed any more evidence of that, here’s how it steeply dropped on its second week:
From #13 to #58 in a week!
Yup! Those album pre-sales only pushed the song up to #13.
But when only the sales of the song per se, audio track views on YouTube/VEVO, radio, and other forms of streaming were taken in consideration, it plummeted to #58.
Lesson to be learnt:
Do not celebrate front-loaded sales, little monsters!
And just in case you little
monsters morons did not learn your lesson, remember: the same is happening with Venus Penis now, and will happen with Dope Nope next week in the charts, by the way.
Gaga is performing in space in early 2015, hahaha lol, when will Madonna? The first ever. Kill urself, ur life is over lol
Oh, God! Why are you little
monsters morons so stupid?
First of all, this monster obsession you Gaga fans have with Madonna is not cute! I understand that it is impossible not to think of her - she is totally gorge in every way! But seriously, you guys don’t have to make it all about Madonna all the time. Really! This just emphasizes how stupid and limited you little
monsters morons are!
You see, when Gaga finally announced something that would not be compared to Madonna (a trip to space), you idiots kept talking about the Queen of Pop. Other than Lady Gaga’s constant copying, you little monsters are the reason why she is constantly compared to Madonna. That’s how relevant she is to your lives (that explains why Gaga’s singles are flopping, while the MDNA TOUR DVD is set to be the best selling concert DVD of the year). How dumb and useless can you guys be?
You just missed an opportunity to let Gaga “shine” on her own, without the overshadowing presence of Madonna’s name, image and aura around. But, nope! Little monsters’s obsession with M is bigger than your admiration for Lady Gaga.
And speaking of her (finally the focus go to her), after all this Madonna-talk (thanks to you), here’s a little newsflash for you:
There goes your “the first ever" comment out the window!
In case you were wondering, Sarah Brightman’s trip to space will happen in 2014, a year before Lady Gaga’s.
But, anyway, are you sure Lady Gaga will go to space? Will she pass the tests? Will she pass all the physical exams? What about psychological exams?
I mean, she will go on tour next year, right? If her tour flops as hard as the last one, she might end up with another broken hip! You know, with Gaga, poor ticket sales = injury. You know her, right?
Plus, considering how her latest singles (both official and promotional) have been underperforming, I bet her next tour’s attendance will be even worse! Not to mention her other problems! Did you forget about her L-U-P-U-S?
Lupus was the first of the many illnesses Lady Gaga has used to gain public sympathy:
"Poor little girl, she has lupus, but she’s a fighter! Traveling all around the world for a couple of years, on a 201-date tour, making millions! Look at her on stage now! She looks tired, she’s crying for the third time tonight, and now she’s talking about the conversations she has every night with her aunt’s ghost, that aunt who died of the same disease: lupus. Poor girl! Hopefully, she won’t die soon.”
Is Gaga’s lupus gone? Is Gaga cured? I mean, lupus is a serious thing, it attacks your nervous system. I don’t think anyone with lupus (and a history of drug addition, drug abuse, and emotional instability - like Gaga) can pass all the physical and psychological exams to go to space… do you?
Honestly, I don’t think the woman who gained 25 lbs during a world tour has the discipline, psychological strength and determination to go through all this. Maybe she’ll ask Madonna for Sarah Brightman’s number. Then she will get all the deets on what happens up there.
[I attended Sarah Brightman’s concert a month ago and took this pic].
Here, baby, sit down and watch Sarah Brightman going through some crazy-ass training to go to space - as the first female singer ever!
Sorry Gaga fans, Stefani Germanotta, once again, is REDUCTIVE!
Last night, YouTube streamed the first YouTube Music Awards with performances by Lady Gaga, M.I.A., Eminem and a bunch of other people.
Gaga, always desperate for attention, showed up at the event like this:
Cute! But she will have to work a little harder to gain people’s attention.
As the Los Angeles Times reported:
"Then came a deeply strange and out-of-tune performance by a barefoot Lady Gaga dressed in a black ball cap and a checked shirt buttoned to the top.
She was crying. Tears streamed silently down her face as she wailed, and viewers streamed silently out of the show. During the three minutes or so that Gaga was on screen more than 4,000 viewers exited and continued to do so as microphones cut in and out, cakes were mashed to uncover awards, and Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt were bleeped out for most of their unintelligible performance.”
The Crying Gaga: was it part of the performance, or was she crying for an ulterior reason? Maybe because her album leaked and it’s getting bad reviews? Maybe because her latest singles are flopping? Who knows?
I am just glad that the LIVE ratings for the event’s broadcast prove that no one is interested in Lady Gaga anymore. She’s old news. She’s passé. She’s a true has-been.
Now I understand why she needed to ask her fans to share a playlist with her video on loop for nearly nine hours: that’s the only way she can compete with the real kings and queens of YouTube!
Read PDLM’s review of Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP here.
ARTPOP - the album Lady Gaga has been working on for two years leaked Saturday morning.
As some of you might already know, most independent reviewers say it is lackluster, and even some of her fans are complaining about it, saying it is “not so good.” We could not agree more.
ARTPOP truly sounds like a tribute compilation put together in a month or two. There is no continuity in this work: it’s a bunch of tracks thrown in together to fill a record (but not a true “album” in spirit).
Gaga promised a fun album (like her first one), but all she delivered was stupid songs with embarrassing lyrics, and music that has been heard before, especially in the 80s and 90s.
Here’s my track by track review on Gaga’s latest “work.” Make sure you leave a comment afterwards to let me know what you think of the record!
[listen to it here]
The album opens with Aura, a track that uses Infected Mushroom's Still Love Trance music.
The electro duo has publicly stated that they feel embarrassed for the track.
Here’s what Infected Mushroom had to say about the track in an interview to Israeli newspaper Sheva Leylot:
[Gaga] came into Zedd’s studio, her producer, while he was working on our track”, says I-zen. “It was one of its first demos she immediately fell in love with. Zedd called us saying “There’s a problem. Lady Gaga wants your song.” We had some serious deliberation, we see ourselves as a band with a high artistic integrity and we avoid commercialization and doing cheap things such as Britney or Gaga. But suddenly there’s a concrete offer on the table and saying “no” is a mistake, because it’s a guaranteed lifelong pension. Each time the song is being played or sold, we get some pretty nice royalties. So we decided to give her the melody, as long as we are signed under our private names. We felt embarrassment for our fans. But she refused, she wanted “Infected Mushroom” to be credited. So, we decided to go for it thinking it won’t make the cut or she’ll eventually change her mind.
When asked if they liked the final result, they said:
No. I think it’s an artistic compromise. The song is too cheesy and commercialized. The way her vocals are over the melody is bad.
We must confess, we like it better without Gaga’s vocals too. Infected Mushroom’s instrumental is way better in its original form, than when Gaga layed her dirty
hands voice on it.
[listen to it here]
Venus is a complete mess.
“Amateurish" isn’t even an appropriate word to describe its production - many amateur musicians produce much better songs on Garage Band!
Venus is just bad! It’s the Frankenstein monster of the album: with the intro, the verses, the choruses, the bridge all embarassingly sewn together.
Like I stated before, musically, this song does not seamlessly flow, it cracks in all its transitions. Lyrically, it is as uninspiring as ever - which means, it is a legitimate Gaga song.
By that, we also imply that it was constructed based on other people’s work (as usual). This time, Zombie Zombie’s Rocket Number Nine.
[listen to it here]
G.U.Y stands for “girl under you.” Yes, Gaga is as retarded as ever (no wonder her fans love her so much).
Melodically, this song sounds like a Backstreet Boys leftover from the 90s, except on its pre-chorus, where Gaga rehashes “Alejandro.”
There is also a familiar “Have You Seen Molly?" sound here, which indirectly brings Madonna to the table.
[listen to it here]
Lady Gaga, Prince called and wants his song back. Prince, the same guy who once called himself “the artist" for a while.
I don’t think a sexually themed song with a Prince-esque chorus is a coincidence at all, do you?
This song is as original as any dance song from the 80s. I love 80s music (this song, not so much). But I’m waiting for someone to justify my love.
[listen to it here]
This is the part Lady Gaga does Madonna's Erotica - think Did You Do It.
But unlike Madonna’s 1992 album, Gaga’s song does not fit the album. It’s an ugly rock in the middle of the road that forces you to take a detour. With this song, Gaga proves that she did not make a full album, but a collection of songs compiled in a record.
[listen to it here]
Gaga not only copied the music and the melody from “My first Kiss,” but the production is also very similar: 80s-inspired beats (Hey, Mickey!) with faux rock n’ roll electric guitar.
But wait! Weren’t they
copying inspired by Joan Jett's I Hate Myself For Loving You? Oh, the 80s!
[listen to it here]
We have already discussed this song. Musically, it rips off The Deep by Dance With The Dead (as you can see below). But the biggest problem with this song is its submissive lyrics (from a female perspective) while singing in collaboration with R. Kelly - an accused pedophile and rapist.
But I guess Gaga has a fixation on accused rapists and pedophiles: she is best friends with Terry Richardson, and apparently spent thousands of dollars buying Michael Jackson’s memorabilia. Go figure!
[listen to it here]
The title track sounds like a reductive William Orbit imitation track. Bubly sounds and an electronic progressive background - so very Ray of Light of her!
The vocals, however, seem to have been done with Blondie’s Debbie Harry in mind, Gaga definitely was “inspired” by her.
The lyrics could not have gotten more pretentious here. When Gaga’s lyrics are not just plain stupid, they are empty and shallow. “Artpop can mean anything,” but mostly tribute acts, it seems.
[listen to it here]
"I know you want me, you’re just a pig inside a human body."
Need we say more?
[listen to it here]
If I were Donatella Versace, I’d be insulted by this song. Not because it starts with the sound of booze being poured in a glass, or the I’m a bimbo mood, but because it truly has one of the worst lyrics in pop music. Get oooooouuut!
[listen to it here]
Musically, Gaga copies Madonna’s Holiday, but sings David Bowie’s Let’s Dance over its music.
The production emulates Stardust’s Music Sounds Better With You, which not coincidently, was seamlessly mashed-up with Madonna’s “Holiday” in her 2001 Drowned World Tour.
Did we mention this song sounds like Madonna’s Holiday? Yeah? Okay! When I say pimp, you say ho!
[listen to it here]
It seems Gaga’s source of inspiration always comes down to the same people. This time, she’s back at sucking on Depeche Mode's tits.
Too bad this song is just another stupid reference to pot and the Netherlands (where marijuana is legal). But something tells me Lady Gaga fans aren’t smart enough to understand the reference in the title “Mary Jane Holland.”
[listen to it here]
I only heard this song twice before writing this review. I could not endure this torture any longer. Awful vocals - what was she thinking?
If she was trying to sound like Stevie Nicks, she failed miserably. She sounds like a dying dog. Maybe she was trying to sound like Bonnie Tyler. But still, unlike these ladies, Gaga sounds awful.
And puh-leez! Another drug reference? “I need you more than dope" sings Gaga - as deep as puddle.
[listen to it here]
The parts that this song don’t sound just like Bruce Springsteen's Thunder Road, it sounds like Gaga’s Highway Unicorn.
If such an awfully weak album is not enough to turn you off, here are a few more facts about Lady Gaga that will surely turn off any sane person:
1) She wears Galliano (in Berlin) and is proud of it.
Yes, the same John Galliano that was fired from Dior after declaring his love for Hitler.
While decent people shy away from him (like Natalie Portman), Gaga goes after the crazed Nazi-lover for his dresses, wears them in Germany and feels blessed. Lovely.
2) She thinks ARTPOP is an spiritual experience.
3) She thinks Born This Way left a mark in the world in terms of change and message. She also thinks she gave something back to her fans (as opposed to how much money she makes as an artist).
4) She thinks Born This Way gave her fans a voice to speak and stand on their own.
5) She really thinks her music is ART, and that ARTPOP is above commercialism.
6) She doesn’t want to express herself, she wants to express other people’s emotions.
7) Her relationship with Jeff Koons is very sacred and private, so sacred and private that she doesn’t want to talk about it. But she reveals that they are so connected, that she even played her record for him before anyone else! Wow!
8) "Everybody thinks they can make art" says Gaga mentioning how easy it is to film and take pictures and share them online. "But this is not art" she continues. "Art requires discipline, talent, passion and a desire to make a statement that is rooted in a revolution, an insatiable need to make a statement connected to something higher, a spiritual connection."
Did you guys listen to the same ARTPOP album I did?
9) She thinks she’s the kind of person a lot of people can relate to. That’s the moment she talks about her weight gain and drug addiction (again).
10) Lady Gaga on showing her ass:
"This is a good time to show my ass, because it’s all I choose to give you, I’d rather be an ass than be real and give you what you don’t deserve."
Remember Madonna's speech about showing her ass during the 2012 MDNA Tour?
11) After breaking her hip, Gaga’s still working on her dancing to be what it was before, but she thinks she’s a better dancer now:
You know you’re in trouble when your biggest supporters decide to stop pretending you’re the second coming of
Rolling Stone magazine (you know, that one that always pushes Lady Gaga down our throats as a pop icon) published a succint review of what was planned to be ARTPOP’s second single, Venus. And here’s what they said:
[Gaga’s] space-disco ode to the planet of sex sounds even more like Madonna than you’d expect, especially “Papa Don’t Preach,” chanting, “Goddess of love, take me to your leader!” But give Gaga credit for restraint: She waits three whole minutes for the Uranus joke.
They also gave a song three out of five stars.
Lady “I’m inspired by no one" Gaga also got a very bad review from Pop Justice, which said:
It’s worrying, almost heartbreaking really, that this piss-poor, messy descent into self-parody was ever in the running for the second single from ‘ARTPOP’. (…) This song simply isn’t finished. The production is incredibly basic, the lyrics feel like a first draft, and the middle eight is a disaster.
They gave the song four starts out of 10:
Honestly, I think both Rolling Stone and Pop Justice were very good to Gaga. I would have given the song 2 out of 10 stars - only because of the sample she uses.
In case you don’t already know, Lady Gaga’s Venus samples Zombie Zombie's “Rocket Number Nine,” which samples Sun Ra's Rocket Number Nine Take Off For The Planet Venus. All this “sampling” going on, and neither of these two publications mentioned it.
The interesting thing here is that Lady Gaga seems to have learned her lesson. Apparently, she is crediting Sun Ra for the lyrics she uses. However, she is NOT crediting French duo Zombie Zombie for the melody she is using. You don’t need to be a music expert to realize that shady Gaga sings those lines using the French electro duo’s melody, and not Sun Ra’s.
"Venus" is a complete mess. Musically, the song doesn’t flow, it cracks from time to time. The intro doesn’t seamlessly flow into the verses, which don’t seamlessly flow into the pre-choruses, which don’t seamlessly flow into the choruses… there are cracks all of the song in its transitions.
But not only “Venus” is a mess. It seems Lady Gaga’s new album is even a bigger mess than we could have imagined based on what’s come out so far:
Way before “Venus,” there was “Applause,” which failed in every market around the world, but survived in the American charts based on a flawed system that allows YouTube/VEVO views (which are FREE) to help keep a song on the charts. Then “Aura,” a song that uses music from Infected Mushroom, despite their embarrassment. Then “DWUW,” a duet with accused pedophile and rapist R. Kelly, which also copies the musical direction of The Deep, by Dance With The Dead.
I’ve been saying this since I started this blog: Lady Gaga cannot create music from scratch - this bitch always relies on other people’s work to “create” her own. And not only musically, but visually too. And this, folks, is the woman that famously told an interviewer on TV that she is “inspired by no one.” Not even Abramovic or Madonna, I believe:
On a related note, R&B singer Teddy Riley is suing Gaga for $500,000 and punitives for the song “Teeth,” featured on the Fame Monster album. Riley claims he wrote and produced the track back in 2009 and expected 25% of the writing fees but they never came along.
A few weeks ago, the rumor that Lady Gaga’s team was purchasing ”Applause” collectively surfaced on the web when relatively “steady” sales kept the song on the charts.
However, as soon as “Do What You Want” was released, Applause's sales plummeted immediately (even before DWUW was turned into an official single). This makes me think that that rumor might have been true. Especially if you compare their sales history with Katy Perry's:
In a very similar context, Roar (which was released on the same week as Applause) also saw other new Katy Perry songs on the charts: two promo singles (“Walking On Air” and “Dark Horse”), and a second official single (Unconditionally). But unlike Lady Gaga’s “Applause,” the sales of “Roar” did NOT drastically and steeply drop when those other songs became available for download.
This makes me think that maybe that rumor was true: Gaga’s team was indeed supporting “Applause” through weekly COLLECTIVE CORPORATE PURCHASES, and once the new single came out (first as a promo, then as an official song), they started purchasing the new one.
What do you think? I wouldn’t be surprised. When it comes to shenanigans, Shady Gaga is a pro.
We won’t promote just one song in particular this week. Let’s make it THREE:
You can also check Perry performing it LIVE for the very first time below:
Unconditionally still hasn’t gotten a video. But its official lyric video is so beautiful, it could have easily been its official music video. It stars Janell Shirtcliff and Erika Linder, and was directed by Aya Tanimura. Check it out:
If you haven’t heard neither of these songs, just check the videos on this page!
Billboard US might take Lady Gaga’s desperate decision to make her promo single an official single right after it reached #1 in the iTunes chart. But that is NOT happening in the UK.
The singer and her fans were expecting the song to appear in the UK charts this week, but the Official Charts Company said HELL NO:
“Lady Gaga’s Do What U Want (featuring R Kelly) will become chart eligible once the related album pre-order promotion ends. Official Chart rules, as agreed in committee with the British music industry, allow one ‘instant grat’ promotion per album, i.e a single track download given away as an album pre-order incentive. Do What U Want is the second track to be delivered to fans who pre-order ARTPOP, the track will become eligible to chart once the current chosen promotional period ends and the full album is released on 11 November.”
It’s only fair. Billboard US should be ashamed for allowing multiple auto-downloadable songs be included in the single chart based on an album pre-order. It’s a shame, but I’m glad to know not every company supports cheaters and their ways.
When you think of Lady Gaga, what words come to your mind?
I think delusional, hypocritical, desperate, stupid, hateful, unoriginal, try-hard, wannabe.
And what adjectives come to your mind when you think of her fans - the little monsters? I think delusional, hypocritical, desperate, stupid, hateful… basically the same things I think of Gaga.
In case you don’t understand why that’s what I think of Lady Gaga fans, here’s a few examples of how delusional, hypocritical, desperate, and stupid they are:
Earlier, I reported that Gaga’s new
song plagiarism had already dropped from the top position after only 24 hours in the market (being replaced by a song that’s been out for several weeks - Lorde’s Royals).
A Gaga fan then decided to tease me by asking a question he assumed he knew the answer:
“When was Madonna in the top ten for US iTunes?" he asked.
Those two singles off of Madonna’s latest album (MDNA) entered the “Top ten US iTunes,” I informed the little monster who asked the question. But I bet he didn’t know it. He didn’t expect that answer.
I also informed him that Give Me All Your Luvin’ became a Top 10 hit on Billboard’s Hot 100. That was Madonna’s 38th Top 10 hit - more than anybody else (including Elvis Presley and the Beatles). I know, I know… he didn’t ask about it, but knowledge is power. And I wanted to give knowledge and power to a Lady Gaga fan who desperately needs it.
However, not satisfied with the answer he got, and determined to “make Madonna look bad" (LOL, it seems it has become Lady Gaga fans’s goal), he insisted:
"How about Turn Up the Radio?”
Exactly! Just like that, this Lady Gaga fan ignored the answer to the question he asked, just to mention a Madonna song he already knew did not enter the Top 10. Desperation, ignorance, hypocrisy, hatefulness, or all of the above?
You see, Madonna’s “Turn Up the Radio” didn’t enter the top 10 iTunes US, but it came out 30 years after her debut and did not receive any promotion. So I asked him back:
What about Marry the Night?
Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night" came out only three years after her debut and received massive promotion (performances on TV and awards shows including the Grammy’s announcement ceremony). The single also failed to enter the top 10. But I bet this little monster had forgotten about it. Selective memory.
By then, other little monsters joined the conversation, desperately trying to convince me that Gaga is (somehow) better than Madonna (priorities, people, priorities). So what did they do?
They shifted the conversation from “when was the last time Madonna had a top 10 song on iTunes? Oh, last year she had two," to "Gaga has won more awards than Madonna." I kid you not!
“Whenever we have valid points, they have to think about what to say!" claims this little monster. Really!
I mean, you have to be a Lady Gaga fan, a completely delusional and hypocritical try-hard little monster to change the subject in a conversation, then blame others for it. I don’t think these stans live in the same planet as we do.
But if you’re still waiting for the icing on the cake, here is something a very active commentator in this blog (Luigi Germanotta) wrote about Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga the other day. Keep in mind that mother monster’s newest
song plagiarism is R&B influenced and is in collaboration with an R&B singer - the accused pedophile and rapist R. Kelly:
"It’s pathetic how Miley Cyrus is stealing and using the black community to becoma a superstar. She’s a thief. She’s stealing from the black culture, from twerking to R&B. She’s a wigger with no ass, making black girls look like sluts. Why not be original? Why not do country music? Those are her roots. That’s why I love Lady GaGa, she doesn’t try to be what she isn’t, she’s true to herself and her Italian roots. Boycott white girls who use the black community for money and fame."
Now that Lady Gaga’s collaboration with an accused rapist and pedophile is selling well on iTunes, the singer (with an eye on next week’s chart) just announced that her promo single will be FARTPOOP's second official single.
So much for “I don’t do it for the charts:”
This is not the first time Lady Gaga shows how desperate she is to get a higher chart position. The singer is well known for cheating: from begging her fans to buy multiple copies of her songs, to sharing a playlist with her video on loop for nearly nine hours (which prompted Billboard’s editorial director to call her out for it).
Clearly, Lady Gaga is the complete opposite from Katy Perry, who apparently doesn’t care for the charts that much. Or at least, does not take desperate and opportunistic actions with the charts as a goal.
I say this because there are many parallels between the two, but Katy Perry took never changed plans simply because she would chart higher on a certain week.
You see, Katy Perry also released promo singles before “Unconditionally" (PRISM's second official single): they were “Dark Horse" and "Walking On Air.” Both of them went to the No. 1 position in the “songs” chart of iTunes stores around the world (including the US). But unlike desperate Gaga, Katy Perry did not turn them into official singles because of that.
In fact, Katy Perry is so not worried about the charts, that not even her album’s second single was properly released:
Unconditionally hadn’t been put for sale until the album came out. Which means, if you bought the album, you won’t need to buy the song (as a single) because it is included in the record. As for Gaga, she will have three singles (including Venus) out for sale before her album even comes out (which automatically increases individual song sales).
The problem with Gaga is not how ruthless she is on her quest for fame, but how hypocritical she is - and her fans, and the media in general. No one calls her out on her hypocrisy, no one points out her lies and contradictions in the mainstream media. It seems to be okay for her to lie, cheat, steal, and even go as low as collaborating with accused rapists and pedophiles.
What would parents say if the media exposes the fact that their teenage kids are buying songs by an accused pedophile? What would parents say if the media had exposed Gaga and her social network for allowing underage kids posing nude on its pages? I doubt any good parent would support this woman. I don’t think anyone with half a brain would pick Lady Gaga over anyone else, after knowing all the facts about this desperate popstar.
The existence of “Gaga” in the music business is the very worse sign of desperate times. And it is for that same reason, that we support people who will not take desperate measures to feed their own ego.
But as my talented friends of Purple Crush told me a few months ago, “2013 is the year of Karma.” Despite the push it received from the album pre-order (as Gaga Cheat explained), Gaga’s latest
song plagiarism is already dropping all around the world. As of right now, it’s no.2 in the US. Lorde's ROYALS is back at no.1:
But who can blame her?
Royals is a pretty addictive song. It has emotion, freshness and spunk - everything Gaga’s lacks.
Lady Gaga just went on a Twitter binge of self-indulging tweets regarding some of the negative things that have been said about her in recent years. Clearly, she was trying to be ironic (“trying” as the operative verb in this sentence). But this poorly planned move for free publicity only highlights her desperation.
The poor woman ignores the fact that when most of the issues addressed by her are based on facts (or at least stories spun by her own team to generate publicity in the past), there is no irony in bringing them up again. This is just a desperate move to cause sensationalist coverage by using the same topics she’s used in the past:
There is no irony in talking about those hermaphrodite rumors about her, when she is the one who started saying she had a “dick.” There is no irony in addressing the media coverage on her weight gain, when in fact, she did gain weight during her last tour.
And just like most has-beens in the music industry, Lady Gaga is using Madonna’s name to get free publicity again (of course). The Born This Way singer tweeted:
It’s kind of sad how she is grasping at straws here, but does she really think the media thinks she only copied Madonna’s ponytail?
Did she forget that music critics worldwide unanimously agreed that Born This Way was a copy of Madonna’s Express Yourself?
Did she forget that even Steven Klein (the director of her Alejandro video) admitted that you cannot watch the video without comparing it to Madonna’s work?
Did she forget that Laurieann Gibson, her former
creator ”artistic director” also admitted that she made Gaga “do Madonna" on purpose?
After all this, the best ironic comment Lady Gaga could come up with was a ponytail comparison? Really? This explains why we call her “mother moron” (among other things).
Mentioning Madonna is never enough when one wants to appear on the news, so Lady Gaga also addressed Madonna’s now epic “REDUCTIVE" comment:
Good going, Lady Gaga! Using Madonna’s name for free publicity is quite an effective move. But it is far from being unique (just ask Cher, Boy George, or Elton John about it).
However, for someone who is allegedly so creative, Gaga’s publicity stunts are quite reductive themselves! Mainly because Gaga’s latest use of Madonna’s name for publicity only reinforces the fact that Madonna is as present and relevant as ever.
When Madonna talked about Lady Gaga in that link, she was asked by a reporter on national TV about the undeniable comparisons between her song and the wannabe’s. Still, Gaga fans (always clueless) had a field day saying Madonna was using Gaga for publicity (yes, that’s how their minds work). I wonder what Gaga fans will say now that Lady Gaga is using Madonna for free publicity:
Gaga wasn’t being interviewed, she wasn’t asked about Madonna, she wasn’t backed in a corner. But still, Gaga felt the need to use Madonna’s name to generate publicity. So thank you, Lady Gaga. Thank you for reminding your own fan-base of how relevant Madonna is.
You might be asking yourselves why I’m saying Gaga wants to get free publicity. In case you don’t know (most people don’t), Lady Gaga’s new promo single will come out officially in a few hours.
This new Gaga song is as unremarkable as Flopplause, and it is a rehashed version of her own “So Happy I Could Die" (which sounds remarkably similar to Natasha Bedingfield’s Pocket Of Sunshine).
"I write for the music, not the charts." Funny, that wasn’t what Lady Gaga said when she was desperately trying to save Flopplause from complete anhihilation in competition with Katy Perry’s Roar (check her tweet from August 12):
But the reason why Gaga needs free publicity is not because she is rehashing her own songs again. It’s because the new promo single will be in competition with Katy Perry’s new single (“Unconditionally”) for the charts in the upcoming week. We all know how Gaga performed the last time they went head-to-head on the charts (FYI, as of now, Roar still is the second best selling song in the US, while Gaga’s song isn’t):
Katy Perry's new single, UNCONDITIONALLY, is a beautiful ballad about unconditional love, and it has all the ingredients to become another hit. Its lyric video stars Janell Shirtcliff and Erika Linder, and was directed by Aya Tanimura! Check it out below:
This is just a PRISM appreciation post.
After listening to the full album in its entirety, all I have to say is that Katy Perry’s “Prism” is a brilliant contemporary pop album. Wow! Just wow!
No one saw it coming, but Katy Perry is about to hit
Lady Gaga us all like a motherf*cking golden semi-truck with a brick on its gas pedal.
Now that I know what PRISM is all about, I am not surprised that Gaga, just recently, desperately locked herself in the studio to redo songs that she’d been working on for two years (according to herself). Katy is in for the win.
If you haven’t heard the album yet (which leaked), believe me: Prism will blow your mind. If you’re a pop music lover, you’re going to be satisfied with this record. No wonder why Katy Perry is not desperate to change the album’s release date after her songs leaked (including Unconditionally - her next single). Unlike Lady Gaga, she knows her new material is good. She doesn’t need a “pop emergency” announcement.
Make sure you pre-order PRISM on iTunes by clicking here. It comes out in less than a week.
Did you hear the album? Let us know what you thought of it in the comments section.
After bombing with her comeback single (Flopplause debuted selling only 118,000 copies in its first week), Gaga’s big screen debut also bombs! Machete Kills opened with an estimated $3.8 million debut.
Over 40 million Twitter followers, and only approximately 453K people (I am being good here) showed up to see her silver screen debut? Not good, Gaga. Not good.
That explains why she’s so desperate asking fans to buy multiple copies of her latest single and album. After tanking on TV ratings throughout 2011 and 2012, after a lukewarm comeback single, and a horrible Hollywood debut, she cannot afford to have a disastrous musical comeback at this stage.
And before her little
morons monsters even try to argue that Flopplause is “successful,” remember:
It only survived because of free YouTube/VEVO views and commercial slots bought on radio. Note that her team didn’t even try to buy commercial slots in markets where it would not have helped save the single’s chart position, such as in the UK (where it failed miserably).
Well, at least she can say she accomplished something in Hollywood before Madonna: Gaga failed right in her first movie! It took Madonna a few more movies to be called a “bomb” - and she still won a Golden Globe award for her work as an actress!
All the first 500,000 copies manufactured CDs to hit the market in a few weeks are being called “limited” by Lady Gaga.
You read that right:
The first batch of records manufactured - HALF A MILLION COPIES - is (in her mind) “limited edition.”
LIMITED EDITION = all of the first HALF A MILLION CDS MANUFACTURED.
Understand why we call Lady Garbage “desperate”?
But, listen Lady Gaga: there’s help! We might have found the solution for your ongoing obsession with fame and applause:
On another note:
Considering that Lady Gaga sorta copied what I jokingly proposed as the artwork for her CD on the cover of Flopplause (click here to remember), here’s a new idea for the cover artwork of her next single:
